Summary: I bought this game strictly for the equestrian and found myself playing every event! it's realistic and the controls make sense. Some events like shooting I find time consuming and not as fun as the other events. The weird thing is that I've played a lot of equestrian games and this one is the best and it's not even focused on it! This game is worth every penny of the price!
Summary: Athens 2004 is a real good games, I remember when it first came out.. I wasn't expected that much improvement from the last game (ESPN Track and Field). The game have a wide range of events and it's enjoyable. Competision is always tight, the more you break the records the tougher the competiters get. BUY THIS GAME!!! this would be the best Athletics game until/if they come out with one in late 2008/ early 2009.
Summary: While this title is several years old, it is still a very fun PS2 title. My wife and I rented this for the family and had a blast. While there are many games that require you to hammer buttons, there are also games like archery, the 1500k, pole vauly, gymnastics, horse jumping, shot put (and many more)that require a lot of skill. We found most of the games addictive. Also, with practice you could get better. Archery was awesome!
Summary: Overall I love this game. At first I was like this sucks because the controlls are so screwed up, but it's so addicting you play it anyways. After a few days or weeks of playing, I got really good at the confusing controlls and now I'm always playing this game. This game is constantly challenging, so it never really gets old. There are a lot of categories to choose from so if you just hate a few of the games, you can pick other ones.
Summary: athens is the best game ever if u were to like this game u would have to be competitive and patient because this game takes a long time to get good at but once u have secured that u would be addicted to this game like me.
Summary: Athens 2004 is an awesome sports game and a realistic version of the Olympics. I was really impressed with the number of events in the game. As well as the running and hurdles, you can swim, do gymnastics, shoot on the archery range, and even ride a horse! The controls are easy to use. As other reviewers have stated, it is a great party game for you and your friends - really cool with multitap and dance mat!
Summary: I recently bought Athens 2004 and thought it was fantastic, the gymnastics events looks very realistic, and the fact that you can use the dance mat makes the game even better. This is a perfect game for you to invite your friends over to play! There are loads of events that you have to master, and try to become a gold medalist!
Summary: Fun game even though its old I orderd it as it was so fun back in yhrbdays it brought back good memories will never get old always fun to play and kerp you busy can play multiplayer or on your own and choose dofferent events to do or pick set days that are already set up to do.
Athens 2004 (PS2): Get Ready to Bash Some Buttons!
17 September 2011
Summary: My 10 year old son has been an avid fan of the athletics recently on TV, but he realised that although he has quite a few sports games on his PS2, he hadn't got any athletics games. Since the PS3 has been out for some time now, PS2 games are dirt cheap at the moment, some being available for a mere penny plus postage from Amazon. after a quick search on Amazon, I came across this game , based on the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Summary: What a great game. This is button tapping at its best. I brought this game on the cheap a few years ago, and the wife and I have spend hours upon hours on it. It is the old classic formula rebranded and re-packaged but it is quite brilliant! What we really love about this one is that different players (humans) seem to have different strength and weakness. Whilst the game involves much high speed tapping, there is more to it than that, and this is where the beauty lies.
